My father just told me
She has three months to live

I am in pain
My pain runs deep
and no pain killer
will take it away

I saw her in her room
gasping with shallow breath

She is in pain
Her pain runs deep
and no smiling faces
will take it away

I don't want her to die
She doesn't want to die
Why God, Why?

I can't lose my mommy
For I'm still that baby
in the arms of love
so very long ago

The future winks at me
in its mischeviousness
And its uncertainty

I just want my mom
to meet the girl I marry
And pray a blessing for us
Before she goes away.

I don't want to lose my mommy
For she's the one I love.
